the perfect wedding...

we went to Santa Barbara for the weekend to celebrate a friends wedding.
The weather was amazing, the wedding was perfect and the food and wine were fabulous, to say the least.

But first, I have to share with you, my most favorite picture from the weekend.
This guy sculpted a sand mermaid and was asking for a dollar if you wanted to take a picture, Well worth it since other people just laid out blankets with signs as to why they wanted you to throw money.

In case you can't read what people wrote on their signs and blankets one says "Why lie? need beer" another says "I know those other guys have bigger blankets, but I'm new at this" and the last one just says "Homeless"
My cynical self wonders about the truth in this but then again, it's a sign of the times...

When we got to the reception I begged a couple of wine bottles (empty) from one of the waiters who was kind enough to accommodate. He looked at me as though a horn was growing out of my head as I told him I wanted to melt the glass and make a keep sake.

Yesenia's Dream Dresses

I made this bracelet for a 'silent auction' that will be held tomorrow night at The Anaheim White House Resturant.
All the procedes from this event will benefit the programs of
Yesenia's Humanitarian Foundation.
I would give you the site address, but I believe it's been hacked into and has a virus. I can tell you it has to do with supplying prom dresses and all the extras that go along with prom for young ladies who wouldn't be able to go because of finances. (in a nut shell)
